Following the arrest of Baba Suwe by NDLEA, his colleagues have expressed shock over drug scandal.
They wondered why an actor of his stature could be involved in drug trafficking.
Former President of Association of Nigerian Theatre Art Practitioners, Prince Jide Kosoko was full of anger when he spoke to an Online Journal
He said: “Are you sure it is true? If it is, it is madness. It is madness I repeat. I can hardly believe the story. What else does he want in life? This is madness, complete madness I say.”
Sunday Omobolanle aka Papy Luwe who called to confirm the report said he was shocked.
“But I can’t believe that what I am hearing is true. A friend who is in London spoke with me on phone and said that he saw the story in an Online Journal. Sorry I will speak with you later.”
Barrister Tunji Bamishigbin, an actor and a Lawyer, told the Online Journal that if it is true that Baba Suwe is involved in drug peddling, then he does not deserve the position and respect the Nigerian society has accorded him.
“It is also a big shame and it is very disappointing because the society sees us as the mirror through which they watch themselves and if we are found where we are not supposed to be, it is very shameful.”
Star Actress, Remi Oshodi aka Surutu expressed disappointment with Omidina’s shameful act.
“because whoever is not satisfied with whatever he or she has will end up where he is not supposed to be. We are the mirror through which the society mirrors itself and as parents we should live by example. It is a big disgrace to us all,” she said.
A young actor Femi Brainard also condemned the shameful act of the star actor, saying “this shameful act must be stopped because Wunmi was the first victim, and because she was pardoned does not mean that Baba Suwe will go scot free. What he has done is a slap on us and the entire movie industry. This time around he must be made to face the music.”
According to Hon Rotimi Makinde, a member of the House of Representatives, “it is a rude shock. “It’s indeed a disgrace to many of us and the industry I so cherish. I reserve further comments for now until I get details.” He spoke through his media aide, Sanya Ojo.
The incident has generated a huge backlash against the comedian, with some saying it is a comedy of errors!
